Melt in your mouth-Baked Durian Cheesecake (香滑榴莲芝士蛋糕)

I have baked this a long time ago but lazy to post it. My dad bought a basket of D24 durians (about 50kg).
He brought some to his friends and still left a lot. We ate then for two days and kept the remaining in the fridge. I wanted to bake this when I first saw the recipe but every time my dad bought durian, we will finish them at one go. Now is the time…haha, I have been waited this day for too long.

The cake turns out great, it is smooth like ice-cream but the cheese not strong enough too taste, maybe the durian flavour covers up the cheese. However, it is quite good. My dad didn’t eat cheesecake but he can accept this.

Unfortunately, when I make the topping, I forgot to add an egg into the mixture and straight spread the mixture on the cake. I need to spoon out the mixture carefully from top of the cake then do it again, haiz, stupid pineapple!!!

However, I did it at the end ^^

Here is the recipe, adapted from Y3K recipe book with minor changes

Ingredients: (7 inches round loose cake tin)

For Base
125g digestive biscuit
55g butter
15g caster sugar
( I don’t have digestive biscuit at home, I substitute them with some cornflakes and crushed oreo but I don’t recommend this because it turn out not good, not crispy but chewy)

250g cream cheese (at room temperature)
50g caster sugar (I omit this because i think the durian is sweet enough for me)
20g corn flour
100ml coconut milk
50ml UHT whipping cream
2 eggs
180g durian puree

60g milk (I substitute with UHT cream)
40g UHT cream
